A young mum of three, barely able to look after herself was found fit for work and therefore unable to claim Employment Support Allowance. This of course meant she had no money until a fresh application could be put in to the DWP and due to rule changes, a new application where a previous one had existed meant this mum to be successful had to have got significantly worse, or have a new illness with which she could claim. She was being supported with her fresh claim, but obviously desperately needed money for food for her and her three children. So we sent over some money to help her through this until her new benefits payments could be made.
